Large text

Post by Jaharmi » Sat Dec 02, 2006 7:05 am

One of the features I use the most in Quicksilver is the “Large Text” feature. It basically lets you put any text you input and pops it up in large text, similar to the phone number display that practically sold me on LaunchBar years ago. (Even though that large text function is available in Address Book, the smoothness of getting it via LB is just great.)

I’d like to be able to bring up “Large Text” in the LaunchBar bar, press Space, type my text, and Enter.

I also wish I could get Large Text from AppleScript and other scripting languages, but that’s another request …

I'm bummed to see the new beta for v4.2 without Large Text. Oh, that's still the one feature from Quicksilver I would use almost daily. Sure, it's frivolous, but it can be very handy when you need to display arbitrary large text overlaid on your screen.
